Why Vegans WON’T Tell You They’re Vegan
You may have heard some variation of the joke “How do you know someone’s vegan? Don’t worry, they’ll tell you!” Ironically, this joke captures one of the reasons many—if not most—vegans actually WON’T tell you they’re vegan. In contrast to the stereotype that “vegans talk about veganism all the time,” many vegans put great effort into NOT talking about veganism at all! In this video, we not only look into some of the reasons vegans hide their veganism, but also how this self-silencing—and its causes—harms all of us—vegan or not. And the potential solutions may not be what you’d expect. Essentially, we need to evolve towards a world WITHOUT vegans.

Bite Size Vegan aims to serve as an “entry point” for non-vegans to explore veganism in an approachable, non-threatening environment—distilling down complex concepts into accessible formats while providing cited sources for total transparency and to allow further independent research and evaluation.
By taking on the ample time requirements of researching the myriad of issues inherent within and surrounding veganism, as well as sorting through the ever-growing mountains of information, Emily Moran Barwick aims to increase both the accessibility of veganism for non-vegans, and the efficiency and effectiveness of current vegans’ activism.
